Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Wins The 7th Annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial

WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 23, 2017) It would seem that Sam Hafertepe, Jr. is unstoppable, as the 7th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial came to close with the Sunnyvale, Texas driver banking $10,000 in his first career victory in the annual tribute to Jesse Hockett and Daniel McMillin with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"This is probably the toughest race track we've had in a while, and I actually ran it too hard, too early," stated the current National Tour point's leader.

"When we got into lapped traffic, I should have taken it easier on my right rear, but I just torched that thing. I normally don't drive like that, but this is the Hockett/McMillin, and it's $10,000. This race is a big race to win, and it's one we hadn't won and I really wanted to. Next one is the Short Track Nationals."

Rolling to green at the right of Sammy Swindell, the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h was in pursuit of the CP-Carrillo No. 3s who paced the low line, while the cushion began coming into play for Hafertepe before the caution blinked on with four laps complete as Aaron Reutzel rolled to a stop with a big puff of smoke from under the hood of the No. 87.

Winding up through turns one and two, Hafertepe railed the wall to Swindell's back bumper on Lap 5. Swinging wide again as Sammy held the hub, the exit of the fourth turn saw the pass for the lead with six complete.

"Sammy is really good, and he's a tough competitor so I knew he was going to bring everything he had, but we were able to get the best of him there once we got the top rolling. Once we got by him, I knew we were pretty good to pass Sammy like that."

Adjusting to the cushion as the pair rushed into traffic, it all nearly came to an end as several cars tangled directly in front of the leaders. Finding a hole, Sam made it through, but Sammy was not as fortunate as the No. 3s spun to a stop; sending Swindell to 16th on the restart with 20 laps to run.

Elevating Wayne Johnson to second with Matt Covington in tow, the defending race winner set his sights on the lead. Taking a slide at it on the restart, the Outlaw Wings No. 2c was denied the position.

Into traffic once more, Hafertepe had built a 10 car length lead, but the slower cars would allow Wayne to close the gap. With a run through Lap 22, Wayne had the momentum off the fourth turn. Blocked as Hafertepe ran the outside of the No. 21k, Wayne tried to follow through but contact with Thomas put an end to Wayne's night as the front suspension was rendered useless.

Stopped while working Lap 25 for Giovanni Scelzi, who careened the wall in turn four, Hafertepe kept pace over Matt Covington with Johnny Herrera in tow.
To the white flag, Sam's night nearly came to an end once more with a slip through the cushion in turn two. Recovering before Covington was able to capitalize, the No. 15h crossed the line 1.954 seconds ahead of the T&L Foundry No. 95.

With a slight chuckle on the near mishap, Hafertepe stated, "I was running this thing so hard, I had all but used up my tires and I could barely stay on the race track the last two or three laps, so just lucky to come out of here with a win."

In a fierce battle on the restart with Johnny Herrera and Sammy Swindell, who had advanced from the tail following the Lap 10 caution, Nebraska's Jason Martin came up to finish third with Sammy Swindell fourth. Making a run from ninth at the final restart, Jeff Swindell came up to complete the top-five. Johnny Herrera would end up sixth with Brad Loyet seventh. Blake Hahn followed in eighth with Jack Dover ninth, and Derek Hagar tenth.

An overall field of 55 drivers was on hand for the 7th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial. Event points set the stage for Saturday with Qualifier wins going to Jason Martin, Tony Bruce, Jr., Jack Dover, and Giovanni Scelzi. B-Mains were topped by Miles Paulus and John Carney II. One provisional was used by Harli White.

Coming up next, the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour heads for the $5,000 to win, $500 to start Fall Brawl at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. on Saturday, September 30.

Wild Final Lap Yields Another Lucas Oil ASCS Victory For Sammy Swindell At Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 22, 2017) In a wild turn of events, Sammy Swindell found his way to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour victory lane yet again as the wily veteran led the final three-fourths of Friday's A-Feature after race-long leader, Wayne Johnson, looped his Outlaw Wings No. 2c in the first and second turns of the Lucas Oil Speedway.

"I was just hoping there was going to be enough room (to get by). I saw him start to lose it, and it was really tight where he needed to be," commented Swindell when asked about what he saw coming through turns one and two.

Making the win all the more impressive, was the fact that Sammy was able to avoid the spin despite his brakes having gone away in the closing laps of Friday's non-stop A-Feature event.

"With about eight or nine laps to go we lost the brakes, so I was having to be really careful but I knew if we finished right up there in the top-three we'd be right up on the front row tomorrow so I didn't want to give that up. I'd been using them pretty hard and might have got them too hot or something, but I couldn't pump them up or get anything so I was just trying not to get into another car."

Winning from seventh on Thursday to open the 7th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway, Friday's triumph came from the eighth start spot in the A.G. Rains owned No. 3s. Having to pick his way to the front, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and Blake Hahn raced slide for slide with Swindell for most of the race, with traffic finally playing into Sammy's hands.

Starting to catch Johnson with three laps to go as the pair weaved their way through slower traffic, Sammy was within a few car lengths of Wayne Johnson at the wave the white flag. Working under a slower car in the first and second turns, the rear end of Johnson's car suddenly swung around. Keeping on the throttle, Wayne righted his path, but not before losing several positions as Sammy grabbed his 14th career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour victory.
Sam Hafertepe, Jr. would end up crossing runner-up with Blake Hahn rebounding from a spin on Thursday night to the final podium step in the Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52. Tony Bruce, Jr. would cross fourth with Wayne Johnson holding on to complete the top-five.

Coming from 10th, Matt Covington crossed sixth with Johnny Herrera tearing through the field from 17th to seventh. Scott Bogucki eighth was followed by Jeff Swindell and Thomas Kennedy to round out the top-ten.

With event points totaled from Thursday and Friday, Sammy Swindell will start on the pole of Saturday's $10,000 to win A-Feature with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. alongside. The remaining six drivers that are locked into the show include Wayne Johnson, Blake Hahn, Johnny Herrera, Matt Covington, Aaron Reutzel, and Jeff Swindell. The remainder of the field will drop into four Qualifier Races on Saturday night with the top-two moving on to the A-Main and the rest to B-Mains.

The 7th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial concludes on Saturday, September 23, 2017 with Hot Laps at 5:30 P.M. (CDT).

Sammy Swindell Captures Night One Of The Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 21, 2017) With a set of Hockett style donuts through the third and fourth turns of the Lucas Oil Speedway, Sammy Swindell put an exclamation point on his 13th career victory against the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, and first at the "Diamond of Dirt Tracks" to kick off the 7th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial.

Race No. 900 for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Sammy won by several car lengths over early race leader, Aaron Reutzel. While slower traffic came into play at the end of the race, it was not enough to give the No. 87 a fighting chance.

"I knew we had a good car, and as long as somebody didn't take me out or something, it was going to be okay. There was one lapped car at the end that didn't want to get passed, but it didn't stop me," commented Swindell, who is the 15th different winner in National Tour competition in 2017.

Bettering his finish from one year ago by one during the Hockett/McMillin Memorial opener, the triumph for Swindell brings a big relief in a season of extreme ups and downs, "We've struggled a little bit with some things. We lost our good engine we had last year, so we're going between two other ones and got this one where it's rolling pretty good. Over the last few weeks, we found what it likes, but we have a good racecar. We just needed the chance to prove it. I feel like we should have about 10 or 12 wins this year, but things have happened."

Rolling off seventh on the start, Swindell was quick to jump to the front with a ferocious battle in the opening laps with Wayne Johnson and Blake for the third spot as Aaron Reutzel pulled to a sizable advantage. Racing with Hahn, the No. 52 would end up going around in the first and second turns to draw the caution on Lap 6.

Restarting with Aaron Reutzel and Miles Paulus occupying the first two spots, the restart saw Swindell and Johnson going slide for slide past the No. 21 with each answering the other's bid for the silver until the caution again flew on Lap 9 as Paulus rolled to a stop on the front stretch. Seeing his 3.070-second lead evaporate, Reutzel committed to the cushion as Swindell worked the hub of the Lucas Oil Speedway. With the low line coming in, Sammy had Aaron in his sights, and off the fourth turn working Lap 12, the A.G. Rains owned No. 3s bolted to the race lead.

From there, Swindell slowly marched away from the field for his fourth overall score the 2017 season. Johnson and Reutzel exchanged second for a few laps before Aaron gained the advantage with Wayne setting for the show position.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. raced from 10th to fourth with Jason Martin fifth. Racing around the top five most of the A-Feature, Derek Hagar ended up sixth with Johnny Herrera seventh after starting 12th. Brad Loyet eighth was trailed by Jeff Swindell with 2017 ASCS Warrior Region Champion, Jonathan Cornell, making up the top-ten.

In event points following Thursday's festivities, Sammy Swindell leads with 194 markers of a possible 200. Aaron Reutzel is second with 189, followed by Wayne Johnson (179), Sam Hafertepe, Jr. (170), and Jason Martin (169) to make up the top-five.

A field of 55 drivers was on hand to open the 7th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial with seven Heat Races won by John Carney II, Wade Nygaard, Harli White, Johnny Herrera, Aaron Reutzel, Wayne Johnson, and Miles Paulus. Qualifiers were topped by Sammy Swindell, Matt Covington, Derek Hagar, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. B-Main wins went to Tony Bruce, Jr., Dustin Morgan, and Seth Bergman. One provisional was used by Harli White.

ASCS National Sprint Series



Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Pockets $10,000 At The Jackson Motorplex!

JACKSON, Minn. (September 2, 2017) Parking his Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h in Victory Lane for the 13th time in 2017 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. came out on top of a torrid battle with Tim Kaeding for Saturday's $10,000 Fall Classic payday at the Jackson Motorplex.

"It just got a little dirty up where he [Tim Kaeding] was running and being the leader in that situation, he had it all to lose. It's hard because he ran a hell of a first half to this race. He drove a good race at the end too, just didn't know where the track was going and when you're running second, you can move around and that's what we were doing," said Hafertepe of the race with the Lunstra Motorsports No. 3.

With the first start called back, the restart went to Tim Kaeding who outran Matt Covington into the first two turns. Taking second from the T&L Foundry No. 95 through the third and fourth turns, Hafertepe focused his attention on running down the Dammer Trucking No. 3.

Slowed on Lap 10, the start was called off as Eric Lutz rolled to a stop. Single file to the green, the leaders hammered the cushion of the Jackson Motorplex to find traffic in only a couple of laps. Held up by slower traffic with a half straightaway advantage, the back bumper of Kaeding's No. 3 was directly in front of Hafertepe in a matter of seconds.

Using lapped cars as picks, the pair began trading slide jobs at both ends of the Jackson Motorplex with Kaeding holding the point at the start/finish line each time before the caution blinked on with 15 laps complete for Scott Winters who stopped on the front stretch. Slowed on Lap 17 for Lee Goos, the green flew with Hafertepe stuck to Tim Kaeding's back bumper.

Tracking Kaeding through the first and second turns, Hafertepe drove the middle groove into turn three. Trail braking the No. 15h up the track with a big head of steam, Hafertepe left little room for error as Kaeding's run on the cushion nearly ended on the wall as the No. 3 hopped the curb.

Nearly giving up second, but able to recover, Kaeding would have one last shot at Sam with a Lap 20 restart, but Sam Hafertepe, Jr. would not be denied his 28th career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour victory.

Tim Kaeding's runner-up finish was his sixth career podium finish with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour with Thomas Kennedy parking his No. 21k on the podium for the first time in his career. Racing back and forth with Matt Covington just over half of the race, then Seth Bergman through the final laps, Oklahoma's Wayne Johnson rolled to fourth from seventh with Seth Bergman holding on to finish fifth.

Matt Covington ended up second with Johnny Herrera in tow. Skylar Gee eighth was tailed by Lee Grosz and Blake Hahn to round out the top-ten after starting 16th.

A field of 33 drivers was on hand for the Jackson Motorplex Fall Classic. Four Heat Races were topped by Seth Bergman, Tim Kaeding, Thomas Kennedy, and Kaley Gharst. The night's B-Main was won by Scott Winters. One provisional was used by A.J. Moeller for BDS Motorsports. At the start of the night's racing program, the Jackson ASCS 360 Nationals was announced for Labor Day Weekend 2018. The dates are August 31, 2018, through September 2, 2018. More details on the event will be released as soon as they are finalized.

The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is in action again on Saturday, September 16 at Duck River Raceway Park in Shelbyville, Tenn.

ASCS National Sprint Series



Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Smokes The Field At Smoky Mountain Speedway

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (August 26, 2017) Adding his name to the record books at Smoky Mountain Speedway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. picked up his 12th Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network victory, and 14th overall ASCS win on the 2017 season.

Chasing Wayne Johnson on the start, the Outlaw Wings No. 2c rolled the cushion to open up Saturday's feature event. Caution on Lap 2 for Michael Miller who slammed the wall in turn-one, Johnson was stopped on the front stretch to swap out the transponder before going green but was able to retain his spot.

Able to hold off the charge of Hafertepe through the first and second turns, it took a couple laps before Johnson was able to build some breathing room. Running down traffic with a half straightaway advantage over the Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15H, the slower cars began playing to the advantage of Hafertepe. Closing to Wayne's tail tank on Lap 12, Sam worked the bottom side of the speedway with the line paying off a lap later.

"Wayne got me on the start, and track position was important. I kept looking at the bottom and I knew it was going to come around, and it came in perfect when we got to those lapped cars that I was able to manipulate the bottom," commented Hafertepe of the pass for the lead that netted him his 27th career National Tour score. "After we found the right place to run, I don't think anyone had anything else for us."

Moving to the lead, Hafertepe quickly built his advantage as Blake Hahn also worked the inside line to take over second. Still contending with slower cars while running third, slower traffic would be the end of Wayne Johnson's night on Lap 16 as the No. 2c ended up flipping into the wall in the first and second turns. Wayne was unharmed.

With Blake Hahn and Matt Covington now in pursuit on the restart, neither were able to get the run on Hafertepe as Aaron Reutzel came into the mix for the third spot. Trading the spot several times, both drivers were having to contend with failed nose wings, with Aaron able to roll the wing forward to put the car back in balance and gain the advantage on Lap 23.
Going green the remainder of the feature event, Hafertepe found slower traffic in the closing laps. Bringing Hahn from a half straightaway disadvantage to only a hand full of car lengths, time was out for Hahn to get a run as Hafertepe won by 0.914 seconds.

Blake Hahn was joined on the podium by Aaron Reutzel with Johnny Herrera moving forward from ninth to finish fourth, followed by Matt Covington in fifth. Brian Bell was sixth, followed by Skylar Gee from 10th. Harli White, Seth Bergman, and Eric Riggins from 19th made up the top-ten.

A field of 19 was split into three Heat Races with Brian Bell, Wayne Johnson, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. each earning wins. Wayne Johnson was the FSR Radiator High Point Driver of the Night. Eric Riggins, Jr. was the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger.

The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network return to action at the Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. for Labor Day Weekend on Friday, September 1 and Saturday, September 2.

The Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints returns to action on Saturday, August 26, 2017, at Smoky Mountain Speedway with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

ASCS National Sprint Series



Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Dominates Lucas Oil ASCS At Missouri State Fair Speedway

SEDALIA, Mo. (August 20, 2017) Picking up his second win of the season at the Missouri State Fair Speedway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. made it 11 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network wins in 2017 with Sunday's triumph at the "Historic Half-Mile".

Taking his overall win total on the season to lucky No. 13, Hafertepe began his 25 lap quest from the cushion side of the front row with Aaron Reutzel taking the green from the pole.
Chasing the No. 87 on the start, Hafertepe ran anywhere from two to six car lengths away from Reutzel's back bumper as the pair rolled up on traffic with five laps complete. Both running the cushion in turns one and two, Hafertepe began searching for options at the opposite end of the Speedway. Sliding himself through the third and fourth turns, Sam was on par with Aaron's pace.

Working the eighth trip around the Missouri State Fair Speedway, the cushion in turn-two would end up being Aaron Reutzel's undoing as the Momentum Suspension No. 87 hopped the curb and spun to a stop off the exit of the second turn.

"Traffic was tough, and I knew Aaron was going to be running hard and that's what happened is he ran just a little too hard in traffic and got bottled up and gave us a clean track," commented Hafertepe who has one four Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour events in Missouri. "I wasn't really trying anything. Really, I was just waiting for him to mess up. That was my game plan the whole race because we just had a really good car."

Handing the Heidbreder Foundation Service/Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h command of the A-Feature, as the field reverted to Lap 7, Sam was gone quickly from the battle for second between Giovanni Scelzi in the BDS Motorsports No. 1, and the RAMS No. 14k of Kyle Bellm. Taking over the runner-up spot from Giovanni, the driver from Nixa, Mo. would not be alone on the pass as Brian Brown maneuvered his seventh starting Casey's General Store/FVP No. 21 to third.

Trading the second position a number of times, the pair would not be able to run-down Sam Hafertepe, Jr. even as the No. 15h rolled through traffic. With his margin of victory right at a half straightaway, the silver would be awarded to Brian Brown with Kyle Bellm ending his night third.

Racing back and forth with Seth Bergman in the closing laps, Giovanni Scelzi crossed fourth with Bergman fifth.Brad Loyet rolled forward six positions to sixth with Miles Paulus seventh, after having run in the top-five for much of the first half of the race. Jonathan Cornell was eighth, followed by Wayne Johnson. Earning the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the race, Johnny Herrera moved up eight spots to round out the top-ten, and also pocketed $400 from Don Long's Searsboro Telephone Co.

A field of 23 drivers was on hand at the Missouri State Fair Speedway. Three Heat Races were also sponsored by Don Long's Searsboro Telephone Co with Giovanni Scelzi, Jonathan Cornell, and Seth Bergman each getting an extra $200 for their Heat Race wins. No B-Feature was contested.

The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is in action again on Thursday, August 24 at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. before heading to Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tenn. on Saturday, August 26.

ASCS National Sprint Series



Clint Garner Finally on Top at Knoxville 360 Nationals; Eric Bridger Victorious in 305's

Bill Wright/Bryan Hulbert - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 5, 2017) - One of the greatest 360 sprint pilots ever at the Knoxville Raceway, and indeed, one of the best sprint car drivers at the "Sprint Car Capital of the World", finally broke through and won the 27th Annual Knoxville 360 Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank. Clint Garner, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota held off the field to win the 25-lap $15,000 event at Knoxville on Saturday night in his fourteenth try at the event.

A fairytale evening for the seven time Knoxville Raceway 360 track champion, the win is not only his first in the Knoxville 360 Nationals but first against the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. With the addition of Garner to the record books, 140 drivers have taken home a win with the National Tour.

Before a lap could be completed, Friday's preliminary winner, Greg Hodnett spun, in turn, one to bring out the caution flag. He would restart at the tail, while up front, Garner took the point ahead of two-time event winner Wayne Johnson and Aaron Reutzel. Jamie Ball maneuvered by Reutzel for third on lap two.

Garner used the low side, as he and Johnson separated themselves from the field and entered lapped traffic on the tenth circuit. A lap later, Brian Brown, who started 12th, was into the top five. The last caution came with 13 laps in the books as Calvin Landis slowed to a stop without brakes.
Garner led Johnson, Ball, Reutzel, and Brown back to green flag racing. Johnson got a run under Garner at the cone but was shut down into turn one. That sent him up the track, and Ball got by him for second. Meanwhile, Brown jumped by Reutzel into fourth. Johnson would use the low side to shoot back by Ball.

Brown would slide in front of Ball on lap sixteen to take third. Garner continued his mastery up front on the cushion. Johnson would bobble in the marbles on lap 19, and Brown would reel him in. While Garner sailed away up front, Brown took second with four laps to go.
The win was Garner's 33rd career triumph here in the 360 class, second on the all-time list only to David Hesmer. Brown came home second as the hard-charger, ahead of Johnson, Reutzel, and Ball. Christopher Bell, Sam Hafertepe Jr., Jeff Swindell, Tim Shaffer and Hodnett, who recovered from the tail, rounded out the top ten.

Dusty Zomer led the way in the non-stop 15-lap B Main, while Joey Saldana had an impressive drive to win the C. Lee Grosz won the D main. The C main saw the most incidents. Scott Bogucki came to a stop, in turn, one, and collected Matt Egel, who got upside down. Cody Ledger, who had a minor fire after the D main, was also a flip victim in the C. No one was injured.

"It did get to the point where it was the 'win it or wear it' moment," said an emotional Garner in Victory Lane. "I ran the heck out of it. It's just a guessing game out front. You have no clue where everyone else is going and what's happening. I wish I could say it's easy, but it's so hard to do. This is definitely the biggest win of my career. I'm so happy, and there are so many people here. A lot of these guys race for a living and they know how hard I try to keep up with them. They know when I can beat them, it is special. I'm proud to be a working man that races on the weekend. I'm more proud that I just beat a bunch of professionals. I think we were 12th quick in hot laps and there were a lot of questions flying. There was a gear change that we had to make. I'm so proud of my guys."

"Clint has been coming here a lot of years," said Brown. "He has a true sprint car family. His brother, his Dad...I'm envious of him. That's what racing's all about. If I can't win it, I'm glad he was able to. He should have won it three times by now. It was a great effort by our team. I was hoping for one more yellow. Twelfth to second is nothing to hang our head about."

"I suckered (Garner) on the first start. I knew I wouldn't get another chance at it. Then he got the lead. He started running the top, and I felt like I was better than him on the bottom. The caution came out with twelve to go and took the lapped traffic away. I wasn't catching him late in the race, so I went to the top. I just opened the door for Brown there to slide me. We've struggled quite a bit at times in the last seven or eight months. So we can't hang our head about finishing third behind the two guys that probably have more laps here than anyone. Congratulations to Clint. Those guys work hard, and they're good friends of mine."

Eric Bridger led early in the 15-lap 305 feature. The current point leader set sail, ahead of Matthew Stelzer and Ryan Leavitt. The only caution of the event came on lap nine when the fourth place car of Joe Simbro slowed.

Bridger would lead the field back to green, dogged by Stelzer. Kade Higday quickly moved into third. Stelzer would use the cushion to work around Bridger and take the lead with two laps to go. When he missed his mark in the middle of the track on the next lap, however, Bridger would retake the point and the rookie would go on to win his second feature of the year here. Stelzer, Higday, Tyler Glass and Leavitt followed. Kelby Watt, Mike Mayberry, Evan Epperson, Chris Walraven and Rob Kubli completed out the top ten. Bridger set quick time, while Glass and Watt were heat winners.

"I about gave that one away," said Bridger in Victory Lane. "I must have gotten slower. I just got looser and looser. Luckily, we started on the front row and got the job done. That was pretty close. We were able to come out on top. He may have made a mistake in turn three and let me get back to the low side. I just have to thank my crew. I didn't do that last time."

The Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will be off until Sunday, August 20 when the tour hits the "Historic Half-Mile" Missouri State Fair Speedway during the Missouri State Fair. The event is co-sanctioned with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.
